After months of anticipation, the Minnesota Wild will report to training camp on Sunday, Jan. 3, with the first practice to follow on Monday at TRIA Rink in downtown St. Paul.
It will be a new-look team once the puck drops for the Jan. 14 season opener against the Los Angeles Kings.
Some key offseason additions include goaltender Cam Talbot, winger Kirill Kaprizov, and centers Marcus Johansson, Nick Bonino, and Nick Bjugstad. In turn, the Wild bid adieu to household names like longtime captain Mikko Koivu, veteran goaltender Devan Dubnyk and No. 1 center Eric Staal.
It’s still unclear how everything is going to shake out with a number of players, most notably first-round draft pick Marco Rossi, who are vying for some of the final roster spots.
Here’s a look at the full training camp roster (players listed in alphabetical order, by position):
Forwards (22): Nick Bjugstad, Nick Bonino, Mitchell Chafee, Joseph Cramarossa, Connor Dewar, Brandon Duhaime, Gabriel Dumont, Joel Eriksson Ek, Kevin Fiala, Marcus Foligno, Jordan Greenway, Ryan Hartman, Marcus Johansson, Luke Johnson, Kirill Kaprizov, Gerald Mayhew, Zach Parise, Victor Rask, Marco Rossi, Kyle Rau, Mason Shaw, Nico Sturm
Defensemen (12): Calen Addison, Matt Bartkowski, Louis Belpedio, Jonas Brodin, Matt Dumba, Brad Hunt, Ian McCoshen, Dakota Mermis, Greg Pateryn, Carson Soucy, Jared Spurgeon, Ryan Suter
Goalies (5): Dereck Baribeau, Andrew Hammond, Hunter Jones, Kaapo Kahkonen, Cam Talbot
